PARENT INVOLVEMENT AND FUNDRAISING  

This school recognizes that parents are the principle influence in their children’s lives. We welcome and expect parent involvement for the successful operation of this school. We also recognize the many demands that are placed on families’ time and therefore, offer varied level of involvement opportunities. We expect that each family will be involved in the life of the school in some of the following ways.

  • driving for K-Club field trips
  • supervising  nap room during staff meeting
  • attending  parent meetings
  • attending  social events
  • volunteering in the classroom, outdoor classroom or making classroom materials
  • chairing or serving  on a fundraising committee
  • serving on the governing board or a committee of the board

ANNUAL “HOUSE FUND”

Parents, grandparents, faculty, friends and alumni are asked to participate in the annual House Fund.  Each family is expected to contribute to this fund drive each year.  Our goal is 100% participation.  Donations  allow the school to continue its history of excellence and to build upon what others before us have made possible to today’s families.  Funds are used to enhance the school in ways that make  a significant impact in our programming and in facility improvements.

WINTER BAZAAR  

An event for the whole family that occurs on the first Saturday in December each year.  Many volunteers are needed to facilitate the success of this fun family occasion.  Each family is expected to participate in the bazaar by donating time and/ or goods, by serving on a committee and/or staffing  an activity on event day for at least one hour.  Winter Bazaar often includes a bake sale, adult beverages, game areas, food sales  and  a special “children’s only”  gift shopping area.

 

MONTE-SOIRÈE

This annual spring auction party supports Children’s House tuition assistance program. This is an adult only party and is looked forward to each year with great anticipation. The auction is in the late spring and needs many volunteers to reach its goals.  Additionally, our families are asked to participate in securing items or services which can be auctioned.   Area businesses have been very supportive of our annual auction and our families are exceptionally creative in designing their own “auction items”.
